Esperanto Por UN

Welcome to the web site for ‘Esperanto Por UN’, an Esperanto-language support organisation for the United Nations. Here you can find information on Esperanto and the United Nations. We work to support the United Nations and UNESCO, in partnership with the Universal Esperanto Association, an ECOSOC accredited organisation. We promote multilingualism in the UN and the use of the International Language Esperanto. We have teams of representatives in New York, Geneva, Vienna, and Paris, with additional collaborators across the world.
Important documents such as the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and similar seminal documents have appeared in Esperanto translation. Explore these and other documents in Esperanto translation.
